Boise State University is a great school in many ways. They have many resources and opportunities, great food, fun athletics, etc. The only thing I can think of to improve Boise State is the advising which could be more organized and efficient.
Overall a good experience, there’s access to several resources you just have to be ready to reach out! Most professors are fantastic.
I like the campus and the classrooms, as well as my teachers (so far, they’ve been far more accommodating than expected, especially with late work and if you’re struggling with your grade). Though since I had to get more online classes than I had wanted, I haven’t been able to connect with those teachers. I like being able to have many options on campus to just sit at a desk or a comfortable seat and do work without much distraction. The snippets of the dorms I have seen have been very nice (though they were the more expensive ones), you just obviously have to put in your own effort to make and keep them nice. As I live off campus, and am a commuter it’s hard to connect and get the full experience. It may be harder to find friends. Commuting itself isn’t as difficult as it might seem if you don’t have a car. I take the city bus to get to campus, and then the shuttles once I’m on campus. I like the shuttles, except when they’re not timely, which sometimes happens.
Faculty are very helpful. resource person for the program is very hands on. She guides you all the way thru. reminds you when to register and also apply for graduation
One of the worst Universities ever. The school is great at persuading you to enroll but once you're a student they don't care about you at all. My sister and I both go here (I am a senior and she is a freshman) and neither of us would ever recommend this school to anyone. I have never felt helped or cared for in the 4 years I have been here and my sister just had a meeting with her advisor to switch her major which ended in the advisor telling her to leave the school and go somewhere else. I have gone through 3 different advisors here and none of them have been any help to me whatsoever. My first advisor messed up my schedule my freshman year by making me take extra classes that I did not need which resulted in me having to switch my whole major for my very last semester so that I can graduate in the spring. I might also add that the person who helped me switch was in fact none of my actual advisors. This does not even include how awful the professors are but I am out of room to type.
Boise State has a really nice atmosphere with a great professors. The location is great, a nice town with lots of fun activities.
The application process was very simple and easy. They got back to me quickly with my results which was appreciated! The only problem I had was figuring out where to submit my high school transcripts, but one simple email to someone from their team quickly cleared up the confusion.
All the instructors are experience and passionate about their fields; and even more passionate about sharing their experiences and knowledge.
Boise State University is reasonably priced, and is located in Boise, ID, which is the state capital. The campus is located right by the river, and is surrounded by trees with a view of Bogus Basin. It's a very pretty campus. The football field is famous for the blue astro turf and the games are well attended. Boise State offers a number of different academic opportunities and is a great college!
I love Boise State, the faculty are amazing and I feel safe on campus. It’s an honor to be part of the Boise State community. I’ve only been attending Boise State for a few months but everyone I’ve meet so far are so kind and amazing.
Boise State provides an amazing well rounded experience. From the social activities to sports there is always something to keep you busy. Education is great.
So far my school has been great. It has been fun and the people are sweet. Only one teacher has sucked but I have sooo many more to meet and I’m so excited. I can’t wait. The campus is beautiful and they have food options for everyone.
I will be attending Boise State University of Fall 2023. Applying to it was super easy and they make sure all your questions are answered as soon as possible. I got to see a bit of some of the campus while traveling and the scenery was beautiful.
I have really enjoyed my experience so far! I didn't know what to expect when I enrolled, but I can't wait for what's next.
being born and raise in Idaho i always knew i wanted to attend boise state, the in state tuition is very affordable at least for me and the university has so many gathering opportunities for students to be able to meet new friends. I have had so many great professors and they are all accommodating for my needs. i have enjoyed my first 2 years so far
So far I have really enjoyed attending BSU. One thing I think could change is the inequality of value for the arts vs the sports. Just a few weeks ago there was no parking for a Morrison center event because the garage designated for the Morrison center was full of football game attendees. However, there is more equality for the arts than there was in high school. I do feel that Boise State creates a good community for extroverts, but creating more events catered towards the social outcasts to make friends would be helpful.
Boise State is a beautiful campus located next to the Boise River. The architecture is a mix of old brick mixed with several new buildings to create a great campus. Boise State is the perfect size as everything is within walking distance . I've found most of my professors to be knowledgeable and caring.
I love this university. The teachers are very knowledgeable and helpful. I’ve been to 3 colleges, and this one is by far the best when it comes to content. The only things I really hate about the university are the housing rules. I don’t think Freshmen should be required to live in the dorms. They should be able to live in the apartments too if they want. I also really hate the 90 dollar online class fee. What is that about? Online classes should be cheaper in my opinion if they’re going to be different for the class types. You don’t have to provide a classroom for us. It makes no sense.
I love boise state, the atmosphere, the games, the classes. Best years ever. They really work with you to help you succeed, and make sure you’re ready for the day you graduate.
At Boise State University I've had a wonderful experience! The very friendly staff is always willing to help, and help you succeed. A clean and safe college campus that is easy to navigate.
